|Gorgeous glazed salmon served with teriyaki noodles|
|Three ingredients for a delicious glazed salmon. Yum!|
|1/2 cup of honey (or maple syrup) 1/2 cup of soy sauce|
|The 3-ingredient marinade has already added a nice color to the salmon|
Next the recipe says to pour the marinade and the salmon in to a 9x13 pan and cook in a 350º for 15 minutes or more covered in foil. I do not like cooking fish in the house because, let's face it, the smell can linger a bit too long. Instead, we wanted to use our outside BBQ. Get a small sheet pan and make a little tin foil "boat" to fit inside the pan. This will hold in the marinade and make it so there is one less pan to clean later.
|The tin foil "boat" doesn't have to be perfect, the pan will help it keep it's shape.|
Now pour the marinade and the salmon into the pan
|Doesn't this look awesome?|
Then I handed this lovely piece of fish over to my hubby for the official BBQ duties. You can put the foil boat directly on the grill if it is sturdy enough, or my hubby ended up just putting the pan on the grill. We essentially baked the salmon in the BBQ. If you tried to grill it the regular way, the sweet glaze would burn. Hubby turned the BBQ to medium low (he had a thermometer in there that read 350º) and cooked it for a little over 15 minutes, until the thickest part of the fish flakes easily with a fork. When he brought it back in, it looked like this:
|honey soy garlic glazed salmon. My favorite part is the thin parts that soak up the most glaze|
|holy buckets yum!|
and it smelled like this....

OH that's right, I have not perfected my blog's "smell-o-vision" button yet, but I sure do wish it worked right now. We served this with some warm, easy to make teriyaki noodles and some "crud-ites" as my hubby calls them (or crudites, the fancy French term for raw veggies and ranch dip)
|This seriously made a great dinner!|
Of course the real test to any dinner is... will the KIDS eat it? Well I can say that my kids (who unfortunately will not even touch my mom's fabulous salmon) gobbled this down. I was shocked actually. All three. Eating the same thing... at once. Wow. Cleaned their plate. The oldest asked for more. If I ever get rich enough to have real maple syrup lying around, I will try this marinade using that, but the honey we used worked out really great. Try this one out yourself and let me know what you think!
